Instead of always launching WiiFlow from the HBC you can install a WiiFlow forwarder channel on your Wii system menu and launch directly from that channel.
WiiFlow also requires the hidden forwarder to be installed in order for you to return to WiiFlow after launching a Plugin game, GC game, or Homebrew app. It is not required to return from Wii and WiiWare/VC. That is done by the cIOS.
Use WiiFlow Channel Installer v1.1 by Fix94 to install these forwarders. It will detect Wii or vWii and install both the forwarder and the hidden forwarder. It can also uninstall them for you.
If you are not happy with the banner animation of the forwarder installed you can download the appropriate pack below to install the one you like with a wad manager like wiimod lite or YAWM_EN.
The nine channels shown below are the first original 9 available. These 9 forwarder channels (minus the NihonFlow forwarder) are included in forwarder pack 1 below. Make sure to choose Wii for Wii or vWii for vWii. Each pack contains a wad file for each of the 8 channels. Use a wad manager to install the one you want. WiiFlow forwarders use the title ID 'DWFA' and use Fix94's v14b dol inside. All forwarders use IOS58 and disable AHBProt. Graphics and animations credit goes to the original authors Spayrosam, Mastershoes, JJ-Kwik, Jiiwah and Benjay. If we have not credited you, our apologies as we don't know who all the original creators are.
If you have or know where to download Nihonflow forwarder please let me know on GBAtemp.
These are fixed to properly use patched AHBProt.
Additional forwarders supplied by MassiveRican and Abz below. They are only available for Wii.
WIIU USERS - These forwarders won't install/run properly on vWii. Follow these steps to convert them for vWii.
- Use WiiFlow Channel Installer v1.1 by Fix94. It detects if you are using Wii or vWii and installs the proper forwarder and hidden channel needed for apps and plugins to return to WiiFlow.
- Download the forwarder of your choice below and then follow the guide by Fix94 to convert it to be usable on vWii and install it via a wad manager. Here's the guide - https://gbatemp.net/threads/forwarders-are-back.340226/.
Click the image below to download the forwarder of your choice. They are in wad format and will need to be installed with Wad Manager 1.7 or MMM.
Note: For Wii users only - You will need IOS 58 installed to use these v14b forwarders. System menu 4.3 should already have it. If you need it use ModMii to download and install IOS 58. Or you can use IOS 58 Installer provided your Wii has WiFi. Wii U users do not attempt to install IOS 58.
